spring plowing

Belle and Duke

 

While I was out at the farm on Saturday, Lee and Luke hitched Belle and Duke to the plow. The unusually warm weather meant that it was time to start the spring plowing a little earlier than was usual.

There is nothing quite like the beauty of a horse team in action. The soil was wet and heavy and the horses really worked to turn it over.

Seeing the team pulling across the field, it was all to easy to let my mind slip 120 years into the past. Although rare today, this sight was all to common to our great grand parents.
